Stone Textures



Stone Textures Based on the formation, stones have varying textures – natural, rough, polished. However now a days the stones are fabricated as the desired texture and their usage. There are six main types of textures that are in use.

Natural
As the name suggests this kind of texture comes with natural clefts which imparts a very natural look. To achieve natural surface texture the stone is ripped along its line of cleavage to reveal the natural grain & texture. This texture gives an undulating surface with great character.

Flamed
Flamed texture provides a rough surface to the stone. The roughness in the surface is brought by bursting of crystals when the stone is heated. Such a surface gives an irregular textured finish.

Honed
This texture makes the surface of the stone non-reflective. Such non reflective surface is the result of grinding surface with high grit material to a uniform specification. Thus honed stone colors are not as vibrant as polished stones. A smooth finish with a slight sheen is produced by using a polishing head. This surface is very smooth, but often very porous.

Bush Hammered
The top surface is pneumatically tooled to produce a pitted or grooved surface finish. It uses a pounding action that develops a textured surface

Sand Blasted
This surface is marked by textured surface with a matte gloss. Such finish of is similar to cleft. The sand blasting involves projecting a high-pressure airline coarse-grained grit, onto the top surface of the stone.

Polished
Polished surface texture is a reflection of polished crystals. Such texture brings out the vibrant colors and grains of natural stones. The shine on stone surface is not result of any coating but comes from polishing bricks and powders used during fabrication.

Sawn
Sawn surface is coarsely polished that leaves a semi-smooth, regular finish. It is done by using a gang saw.
